Prep
Cook
Serves 3people
Ingredients
1
cup flour
2
qt water
2
tsp tabsaco
2
oz shrimp
2
oz pork
2
oz okra
4
garlic
2
oz sauage
1
bay leaves
Directions
1.
1. An authentic gumbo is prepared with a dark Re-aux, as are most all Cajun dishes.
2.
In a 6 or 8 quart stew pot (black iron is preferred but whatever you have will suffice) mix 1 cup of oil
3.
and 1 cup of flour. Place over medium heat and stir continuously.
4.
2. For this recipe, medium to dark brown is what is needed. This takes 10 to 15 minutes.
5.
3. At this point, dump in the onion, celery and bell pepper and cook till the onion starts to clear.
6.
Add the meat at this time, but not your seafood.
7.
4. Cook until meat starts to brown, then stir in warm water and seasonings. You are looking for a
8.
thicker-than-soup consistency but not as thick as stew. Add more or less water to achieve this. Bring
9.
to a simmering boil.
10.
5. Add the okra and seafood of your choice. Cook for one hour.
11.
6. Prepare rice and serve over rice in a bowl. Salt and pepper to taste and the Cajuns would add a little
12.
dash of File' (Ground sassafras) or you can use thyme, finely ground (but not as good).
13.
7. For a Creole Gumbo add tomatoes.
